Tonight on the Tube: Bones, Lost, Heist and Veronica Mars

Veronica MarsWow it wasn’t too long ago that Wednesday nights kind of sucked but now the night is jam-packed from start to finish. The second hour of primetime may be the most competition with Lost, Veronica Mars, Criminal Minds and the American Idol results show. Not to mention the old standby Law & Order and the new WB show The Bedford Diaries. With Bones starting the night out there is actually something worth watching in the first hour of primetime. It will probably be a good thing that Veronica Mars will be moving to the second hour slot starting next Tuesday. Although with the new The Unit, House and Scrubs the spot isn’t much better. What will you be watching on your TV tonight?

Prime Picks

Bones (FOX): Bones and Booth head to the Arizona desert after Angela’s boyfriend goes missing.

Lost (ABC): They sure are promising a lot in the promos for tonight’s episode. Hope it lives up to the hype.

Heist (NBC): This show looks like it could be fun. The first episode wasn’t great but it left you feeling there was a lot of potential. Sort of a reverse Prison Break, as they are trying to get in somewhere, with a bit more of a sense of humor.

Solid Selections

Out of Practice (CBS): It is a little late for a Valentine’s Day episode but that is what happens when you put a show on hiatus while you try and launch other shows including the one that follows.
Courting Alex (CBS): The show just hasn’t quite gelled for me. It has a few funny bits here and there but something is missing but it is better than Freddie on ABC.

Veronica Mars (UPN): Wow this timeslot is packed so that is why they are moving this show back to Tuesday night like the first season. Not that there is all that much less competition then ether.

CSI: NY (CBS): The team searches for a helicopter that was carrying an organ that got hijacked leaving a patient in dire need.

Other Options

One Tree Hill (WB): The aftermath of the school shooting plays out. Wow that episode sure seems like a long time ago.

The Bedford Diaries (WB): New show that debuts tonight. I have heard it described as the unsexiest show about sex to be put on TV.

The Evidence (ABC): The gimmick of the evidence at the beginning doesn’t really do it for me. The buddy cop interaction could be fun once they have been doing it a while and are more familiar with each other. Overall the show was very jumpy, tossing you about with no real transitions.

Cable Choices

Emeril Live (Food Network): Repeat about Greek cooking.

World Poker Tour (Travel Channel): The final table of the Grand Prix de Paris. Runs two hours.

Sports Notes

ESPN has some NBA action with the Detroit Pistons at the Philadelphia 76ers followed by the 2006 McDonald All-American Game from San Diego where you can see the best high school basketball players in the country play. ESPN2 has another NBA game with the Utah Jazz at the Denver Nuggets.
